You Must Love Whales to Own This House
So far on this list, we’ve only covered homes in the United States, but this one is from Canada. When you first approach this house in Sooke, BC, the first thing you’re greeted by is a statue of an orca whale. The property is located right next to a 3500 acre park, so it’s very private, basically in the middle of nowhere. But besides the random whale statues and flooring in the entryway, there are a lot of other unique style choices, like red kitchen cabinets. According to the property records, this last sold for only $200,000 in 2015. Sure, the property owners probably put a lot of money into upgrades. But asking $1.5 million for the house seems like a stretch, because it’s so strange. Whales are not the first thing people think of when they imagine luxury.
